Spread Bagelry, a regional bagel chain, opened its doors in the King of Prussia Town Center last month’s Fri. the 13th. Nonetheless, its employees are working solidly to court good luck, especially for autism awareness. Holly Herman, in the Tredyffrin-Easttown Patch, covered the shop’s ongoing Spread Love t-shirt fundraiser for the Eagles Autism Foundation.

The branded, colorful Spread Love shirts being sold were designed by Ambrella, a street artist who works in both Philadelphia and Los Angeles.

All Spread Bagelry locations are vending them: the new site in King of Prussia and those in Philadelphia, Bryn Mawr, Wayne, Glen Mills, and Cherry Hill, N.J.

Online purchases are supported as well.

Offering them is only part of the brand’s autism support; employees will also embark on a 5K bike ride, a sensory walk, and a virtual activity at Lincoln Financial Field.

Tara Pellegrino — the shop’s corporate trainer — is a self-avowed Eagles fan and fully supports her colleagues’ worksite show of spirit for the Birds. “We encourage our employees to wear Eagles gear,” she said.

Pellegrino has made commitment to the Eagles Autism Foundation a permanent part of every day; daily routine; her arm sports a “Spread Love” tattoo.

More on this Spread Love initiative is at the Tredyffrin-Easttown Patch.


Here’s a 2020 interview with Eagles Autism Foundation Executive Director Ryan Hammond.
